The Dallas Pedestrian Network is a system of grade-separated walkways covering thirty-six city blocks of downtown Dallas, Texas, USA.[1] The system connects buildings, garages and parks through underground tunnels and above-ground skybridges. The network contains an underground city of shops, restaurants and offices during weekday business hours.

Future[edit]

The Dallas Pedestrian Network is targeted for de-emphasis by the Downtown Dallas 360 initiative, in an effort to bring more focus on street-level activity. While initial plans had called for a more direct shutdown, a report in April 2012 concluded that a series of measures discouraging further growth or unnecessary maintenance of the system were all that were called for; Downtown Dallas Inc. CEO John Crawford concluded, "[The underground tunnels] aren't much of an issue anymore."
